Fuel offers an external graphics menu only and the settings cannot be changed in the game itself. Besides the screen resolution you can adjust the textures (including Normal, dirt and Shadow Maps) as well as AF and FSAA. It seems like FSAA is not working correctly in our review version. At 1,680 x 1,050 with 16:1 AF and maximal details Fuel is running between 40 and 120 fps on a C2E QX6850 and a GTX 260-216. The CPU is used by about 50 percent. Below you can see comparison between minimal and maximal video settings.
In our gallery we also offer more self-made screenshots of Fuel. The game is scheduled to be released for the PC on July 02 while the version for Xbox 360 and PS 3 will hit the markets earlier.
